My Magical Day |My Prom| My Make Up Crime

makeup-beauty-lipstick-make-up

So as you can tell from the title I will break down my biggest make up mistakes that I made for my prom night.

I did my own make up the reason for this was first I wanted to save money because having a prom night here in Bulgaria is really expensive thing .. Second I didn’t have the time to go and search for make up artist that will satisfy my needs. I had a few friends that went for a test make up session but came back really disappointed.

With that being said I’ve decided to do my own make up and because I loved make up and did a great job doing my everyday make up I thought that I will do the same with the prom make up.

First Mistake that I did – I had no idea what is undertone and all that jazz .. I was doing my everyday make up with eyeliner and natural colors and it was all good. But I saw a picture of Olivia Palermo with beautiful brown smoky eye and I thought to myself .. WОW this is what I want!

But as you can imagine there are a lot of things to consider. This make up look wasn’t for me just because my skin tone was different from Olivia’s.

Second Mistake that I did – I went to the nearest shop and bought the most expensive foundation in the store. Back then I had no idea that a cheaper foundation can do a lot more than the most expensive one. Moreover there was no samples of this foundation so I had no idea what I’m getting myself to.

When I got back home I did a firs impression if you like and I really liked it but here comes the big BUT .. the lighting in my room was horrible and as you may know there is a difference between the lighting inside and outside.

But because I wanted everything to stay secret until the prom day I did my make up with my “every day foundation” and not with the new one.

I’ve realized that the foundation wasn’t for my skin tone after the prom because I saw the pictures!

I looked really funny although I wanted to cry .. my eyes were awful (no blending .. strong color that faded away a few hours into the night but I will get to this .. ) my foundation was with pink undertone which looked .. I just can’t ..

Here is the picture because I can’t explain it .. It’s that bad ..

Third Mistake that I did – I didn’t set my make up so I spend around two hours making this mess .. and I didn’t set the make up .. No powder, no nothing! And probably I looked like this for a few hours but certainly the make up didn’t made it whole night!

So what you can learn from me .. read about season color analysis and do your homework if you will do your own make up. Again do your research – read, watch YouTube tutorials, articles and whatever you want just make sure that you know how to do the make up. Search not for the most expensive product, but for the one that will work for you! And last but not least set your make up! Don’t waste two hours of your life like this ..

Why Fashion is important ? |My story|

Why Fashion?

I love fashion and this is the reason that I want to write in my blog on this topic. But I also want to share the ugly truth ..

I’ve heard different opinions on the topic “‘fashion” .. from women and men who love it and express themselves to the opposite side … people who think that this is vain and not important.

Today I want to share my experience and thoughts!

In my school years I’ve kept myself on point.. always well dressed (you know that phrase dress for the position that you want, not the position that you are currently in, right ?) and I’ve always wanted to look presentable. In my dreams I was Victoria Beckham I had my own fashion company and always looked great.

But something has happened and when I got accepted in my university something .. broke. I no longer made the effort to dress up and look nice. Besides clothes I also loved make up .. but no more.

And at this point it may seems vain to you but I will get to my point I promise!

A few years went by like this and I still wasn’t being myself .. I had the twisted thought that I don’t need to look like before because people won’t get me seriously. (Remember the movie Legally Blonde .. yeah that’s what I’m talking about.)

As I’ve mentioned before my major in university was information broker and some of the professors didn’t think that this is a “girls profession” and there were times that I’ve received different treatment because I was a girl. I was afraid that if I put my outfit together it will be worse!

But now I’ve come to realize that it’s all bunch of crap! I’m sorry but that is the truth.

Fast forward to today ..

Today I’ve had a crazy day.. I had to go to work .. my schedule was full and here comes the realization ..

I was having lunch and then I had to buy present and go back to the office super quick. But in the morning I was doing the usual “just throw something and go” and because of that I had on me the most uncomfortable pare of jeans and t-shit. It was super hot outside my jeans were falling down because .. they are not for my body type (but I’ve bought them a long time ago and I didn’t care)  and I was so frustrated that I wasn’t being comfortable and my body was showing .. parts that you don’t need to see .. You feel me, right?

And when I got back in the office I was so sweaty and uncomfortable.. I was sitting on my deck preparing to give the gift that I’ve bought and I felt miserable. 

And then I’ve realized .. you dress up in the morning so you can go with your day and do the important things and not bother for the uncomfortable pair of jeans and awful T-shirt.

And this is really important if I don’t feel comfortable and good in my skin and outfit my performance on curtain things goes down .. and this is not good. And I don’t think that it’s vain to care how you look it’s crucial how you look and feel.

It’s for your own comfort.

Before when someone talked about fashion and how is not important I thought that this was ridiculous but I couldn’t use a proper example. Now I have one..

And from tomorrow I will make sure that I’m becoming me again and dress up and feel great!

I’m really curious am I the only one or it’s common? If you ever felt that way share with me in the comments or feel free to say “Hi” from the contact page. And if you have a friend with the same problem you can share the blog post!

I wish you a wonderful day and will see you next time to continue the fashion talk!

Hey You!

I have a  present for you!

Every day I will share a little inspiration just like this down below!
Today’s inspiration comes from spring and both Selena Gomez and Olivia Palermo. I love Olivia’s style it’s very chick, very unique. Every picture that I see she looks on point and from the most boring outfit she can make an amazing piece of art!
For Selena’s style I can say that in the last few year she is trying new things – more edgy looks, but still very chick. I love what she can make, I really admire that she always mixes different styles through little bits and pieces!
